Note

Support for file locking is available in FileCloud version 9.0 and later.

Locking is only intended for controlling access to file and folder when accessed via FileCloud. For example, locking a file in a network folder in FileCloud is does not going to lock the file in the filesystem and prevent access to that file in the LAN.

Locking has to be enabled by the Administrator before the user has the option to lock a file or folder.
